That is crazy and they walked away even more crazy.
Do they have cameras everywhere in Russia? And zooming in at the end who is doing that?

Crazy! Glad they were okay! I wonder how it would have turned out if it was a Defender.

Occupants got extremely lucky. Not to downplay the safety built into the newer Rovers, but if you stop or slow down the video, you see the major impact is to the bottom side of the vehicle, not the roof, it quickly flips to the roof, but the initial impact is not to the roof. If it had been, it probably still would have been pretty flat..

That was a lot of impact force, still surprised there were only 'minor' injuries..

Russia is pretty much a police state. There's no real explanation of privacy.

Type in 'exotic car crashes' on YouTube. You'll see all sorts of idiots trying to show off their expensive cars.
